Hi Joe,
Thanks for the ID. I would like to know a little more about you as I notice you seem to have a good handle on this family. By clicking on your name you arrive at your personal page where you can add a line or two about your background and experience.

 
don't worry,
it's the best ID i could dream of :)

 
When *you* say so
it's so :-)

I still would like to see a little background on his personal page. Some of us bugguiders are curious. He's the only one who can edit his personal page. He could simply add:

Joseph M. Cicero
Department of Entomology and Nematology, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida

Moved from Net-winged Beetles.

probably a Leptpceletes sp.
Marshall's book (1) has a picture of a different Leptpceletes sp. and the antennae are identical to this one.

 
Leptoceletes
It looks like that's the genus alright. I'll move it.

 
Thanks, Tom.
I'll crack Marshall open tonight and check it out.
